Convert UNIX epoch to Date object

The Solution to Convert UNIX epoch to Date object is


Go via POSIXct and you want to set a TZ there -- here you see my (Chicago) default:

R> val <- 1352068320
R> as.POSIXct(val, origin="1970-01-01")
[1] "2012-11-04 22:32:00 CST"
R> as.Date(as.POSIXct(val, origin="1970-01-01"))
[1] "2012-11-05" 
R> 

Edit: A few years later, we can now use the anytime package:

R> library(anytime)
R> anytime(1352068320)
[1] "2012-11-04 16:32:00 CST"
R> anydate(1352068320)
[1] "2012-11-04"
R> 

Note how all this works without any format or origin arguments.
